On July 7, 1963, twenty-six people gathered in the new chapel of St. Philip Lutheran Church located at 8850 Davona Drive, Dublin, CA. Through the years God has most certainly been with the faithful of St. Philip providing workers for the church. St. Philip has always been an active, mobile church and there isn't a day that we do not have visitors moving into the area look for a new church home. We offer the hand of friendship and welcome them into God's house. We hope you enjoy a brief tour of our past and come rejoice with us as we look to the future in the service of our Heavenly Father. Welcome to St. Philip Lutheran Church and School. The California-Nevada-Hawaii District purchased 5.5 acres at the corner of Alcosta Blvd. and Davona Drive in Dublin in 1960 for $55, 000. In late 1962 construction was begun on the first unit ( today's Remmert Hall and Pre-school/Office wing ) for $65, 000. With significant help from the Church Extension Fund, in 1964 the congregation bought the house on Interlachen Avenue, San Ramon, which still serves as the parsonage, for $22, 950. June 30, 1963: Pastor Koberg was commissioned as missionary-at-large for the San Ramon Village area. July 7, 1963: The first service was held at St. Philip. Twenty-six people attended, including the Wagners, Stormy Knight and family, Ketchums, and the Kobergs. The offering was twenty-four dollars and some change. A week later the first Vacation Bible School was held. St. Philip was officially organized as a congregation of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod on March 15, 1964. There were 34 charter members. John Bentz, John Bauer, and Bud Anderson were instrumental in writing the first constitution.
